Introducing VXi Envoy UC Headsets

VXi Envoy UC Headset

When testing out the new Envoy UC headset, we were pleasantly surprised at the rich and clear audio quality.  For those of us who enjoy some music while working on projects and in-between calls, it is a huge plus.  The Envoy UC’s microphone boom can also be easily positioned for best voice input.  The VXi Envoy UC headset is rated at 95% noise cancellation by 3rd party testing (CJS Labs) which is superior to many others in its range.  For users looking for a great headset for speech recognition or dictate software like Nuance’s Dragon NaturallySpeak, the VXi Envoy UC would also make a great option.

The headset is also light and comfortable enough to wear all day long with the soft leatherette ear-pads resting gently on the ear(s).  And the in-line control for volume, mute and call answer/end is another convenient feature.  All in all, this would make a great contender when considering UC headsets, closely competing with others such as Plantronics’ Blackwire 500 series headsets or Jabra’s UC Voice 550 series headsets.

Features: 

  • USB interface for plug-and-play ease of use.
  • Hi-Fi audio with DSP for clearer conversations and audiophile-quality sound.
  • Advanced noise canceling eliminates background noise and improves communication.
  • Works with popular UC and softphone applications.
  • Lightweight, comfortable design is easy to wear, all day.
  • Real-world durability stands up to every-day use.
  • Inline control of volume, mute and call answer/end.  (Call answer/end controls may require additional software – www.vxicorp.com/usb )
